JRC International Summer school: PEM Fuel cell fundamentals


The JRC International summer school "PEM Fuel cell fundamentals" is organised by the JRC Institute for Energy (IE), in cooperation with the UNIDO International Centre for Hydrogen Energy Technologies (ICHET), “Ovidius” University of Constanza in Romania and the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK).

The Summer School, as part of the JRC Enlargement and Integration Action, has strategic objectives of:

  • Helping the New Member States, Candidate Countries and Potential Candidate Countries in dealing faster with the “EU acquis” in areas of JRC competence;
  • Contributing to the development of the European Research Area (ERA).

The technical objective is to provide researchers and engineers with the required basic knowledge of theoretical and testing aspects related to Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells (PEMFC).
